"We found widespread systematic violation of the human rights of women in the Taliban areas of Afghanistan". UN Statement.
Official Taliban decrees, punishable by beating, stoning, and death, ban women's work outide the Health industry, education, and mobility. Afghan women and girls risk their lives daily to realize the very basic human needs. Even after international condemnation, the Taliban have only made slight and unofficial changes to their gender apartheid policies.
To the United Nations: We the undersigned petition that stronger action is taken to ensure that women's rights in Afghanistan meet with current international standards.
